We know that a diverse workforce is a better workforce.
An ethnically diverse workforce can make a company not only more attractive to would-be employees. It’s also more attractive to customers and more innovative in its approach.
With the UK population projected to become more ethnically diverse, and with the BME (Black & Minority Ethnics) population likely to be a source of significant future revenue, the inclusion of BME employees is essential for the Engineering & Construction industry.
Employment Minister Priti Patel said:
“It is fantastic news that the employment rate for BME groups is now at its highest since records began in 2001. This underlines our one nation government’s commitment to extending the opportunity to all.”
“We are determined to build on this success to increase BME employment and apprenticeship take-up by 20% by 2020.”
“This is a challenge that government, business and communities must meet to ensure that every part of Britain can benefit from our growing economy.”
The challenge of increasing BME employment is critical to achieving full employment, helping people achieve their aspirations, and ensuring that British business makes the most of the talent and potential that exists in all communities across Great Britain.
